Every so often someone comes along…and you just know this person has been put here on earth for a reason. As though they have something special to share that — one way or another — is going to make a significant difference in the world. Alex is indeed one of those rare individuals.
At just 18 years of age, a college freshman, confused and without direction, he suddenly shifted the entire course of his life and went after a dream. A crazy dream, really. He was going to interview the most influential people in business, sports, entertainment, etc. and discover THE secret to success. Some of these people he decided he’d meet were Steven Spielberg, Sugar Ray Leonard, Pit Bull, Jessica Alba, Steve Wozniak, Quincy Jones. And, just for good measure…Bill Gates!
Is such a goal even possible? Well, in Bob's new episode of The Go-Giver Podcast titled, “The Third Door" we’ll meet Alex Banayan who — at the “ripe old age” of 25 has accomplished that… and much more!
But that’s not even the most important part of Alex’ story. You see, the journey itself — filled with heartbreak, defeat after defeat, depression, cool ups and horrible downs, as well as intense self-discovery — turned Alex from an ambitious, resourceful, and clever young man into a wise, astute, and very successful young adult.
This interview is a bit longer than usual. But, I just couldn’t help myself. Once we began talking, I couldn’t stop listening. :-) From the story of how he hacked his way onto “The Price is Right” (and yes, won the grand prize!) in order to fund his journey, to the insights from the people he met and the lessons he learned, the interview is a thriller.
I don’t think you’ll want to stop listening to Alex either. Listen here: http://bit.ly/2Jisws5 Enjoy!
